Lesson 1: Face Race!
New Words: Eye, ear, mouth, nose, eye brow, hair, face, chin, cheek
Preparation: paper, pencils, die (as big as possible)
Time: About an hour, depending on class size.
Warmer: Song – Heads, shoulders, knees and toes. 5 minutes.
Present and drill the new words – Draw a face on the board with today’s new words. Elicit and drill the new words. Also use adjectives like big, small, long, short and colours. Then teach face. 10 – 15 minutes.
Follow-up game – Run and slap
(or run and draw) a face. Divide the class into two equal teams. Give each team member a number, so that there are two students with the number ‘1’, two students with the number ‘2’, etc. Call out a part of the face and a number. The students with the number that you called out have to slap (or draw) and say the part of the face that you said. 10-15 minutes.
Write the numbers 1-6 on the board and assign one of these body parts to each of the numbers: eye, ear, mouth, nose, hair, and eye brow. Give the each student a piece of A4 paper and tell them to write their name on one side and a face (an oval) on the other side. Divide the class into two teams. Each team takes turns at rolling the die. They get to draw the face part that corresponds to the number that was thrown. For example, if you assigned “eyes” to the number 1 and one team rolls a 1, then that team can draw eyes. They game keeps going until both teams have drawn a complete face. 10 – 15 minutes.
Fun Activity – Duck, duck, goose. End the lesson on a high with this fun activity. Change the words “duck” and “goose” to today’s new words. 10 minutes.
